assistance to be rendered, at what point did he give that order. why did no one show up. general dempsey says the military respond appropriately. i will ask them what is an inappropriate response. the system failed. but the person i blame the most for benghazi is president obama. it's his foreign policy strategy that aloud this conflict to become a death trap. he's the one to share the blame above all others. martha: senator mccain poibtsd out the last two seals were killed in the final hour of a 7-hour siege. it makes the argument you can't respond to the second 911 call and they can't get there in time a little more complicated, doesn't it? >> it it's a system failure. when general dempsey says the d.o.d. responded appropriately. i think not. not one d.o.d. asset reached these people for over 7 hours. i just find it dumbfounding to believe that we could not provide any military assistance on 9/11 of all days. and given the history of the threat. reports out of libya and the terror situation. this is a system failure. no one is pressing the president. the mainstream media is giving the obama

there. including our ambassador. senator john mccain was just asking questions of general dempsey as well as of leon panetta and specifically asking them about drones. drones being a truly hot topic today in this hearing and the one later this afternoon with john brennan and the gentlemen there talking about the drone that showed up for the benghazi attack about an hour later after they got first reports of something taking place. leon panetta saying drones are not like a 911 system. joining me now is senator -- is democratic senator from connecticut richard blumenthal who was in that hearing. he stepped out to talk with us. he's a member of the foreign -- excuse me, the judiciary committee. we appreciate you taking time to come out and speak to us about this especially given the fact that there are two big hearings. leon panetta giving his remarks on benghazi. do you think hagel's confirmation will go ahead more swiftly that leon panetta has been there to testify? >> one of the requests made by a number of republicans was for a hearing on benghazi. there's a legitimate and urgent

. bring every one of these folks in, put them all on a panel. clinton, panetta, dempsey. bring all of them in. do it again. >> they brought mrs. clinton in there. you had this hearing yesterday with panetta and dempsey. that's where this information came out. >> i will protect the senate's rights all day long when it comes to any executive branch whether it's obama, clinton, bush or the next person. i'm not -- my desire is not to protect t protect executive branch. i like congressional hearings. i also like nonhypocrisy. joel just called this a scandal, a conspiracy. there is no conspiracy here unless you say it's a conspiracy. if there is have more hearings. bring them all in. >> it's hard to have fruitful hearings with people who won't tell you the truth. >> you're right. we didn't have much of that during the bush hearings. >> we may never know. a lot of holes in this story that came out dramatically yesterday when leon panetta was cross examined. that's the thing. five months later we're still getting new information. gentlemen, thank you. joel pollack, we appreciate it. jimmy williams

. and then a long time passed before he got any updates. but, general dempsey said that the president's national security staff was being constantly updated. so top staff members were in the loop throughout the whole thing. good enough? >> probably not. i think up until yesterday this benghazi story had been about hillary clinton, about susan rice, about the state department. yesterday it became about president obama. and the question was, where was he, after having a prescheduled meeting in the afternoon on that day, secretary panetta spoke to him no more. i think what became clear with lindsey graham's questioning about possible military activity is that nobody in the pentagon would have ordered military act ship without a specific order from the president. and the president wasn't around. rick: i want do ask you both, we have about a minute and a half left. another story came out of these hearings. that is the president himself, rick, himself opposed a plan that was supported by pretty much everybody else in his administration, to try to arm the rebels in syria. what do you make of that? >> y

'll talk about it. he showed up with the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, martin dempsey. finally you had a bunch of senators who wanted answers to their questions and therefore you had something you could really benefit from, if you were one of the many americans interested in getting to the truth about 9/11/2012. >>steve: we have heard stories about how navy seals and people in benghazi were calling for help. we heard about people on the roof painting where the target was going to be. why couldn't they send an aircraft? apparently there were ready aircraft 90 minutes away. leon panetta said we did the right thing. it would have taken somewhere between 9 and 12 hours to get an armed aircraft there. here he is. >> there was no specific intelligence or indications of an imminent attack on that -- the u.s. facilities in benghazi. and, frankly, without an adequate warning, there was not enough time given the speed of the attack for armed military assets to respond. >> once an attack takes place, the biggest problem you have is getting accurate information about exactly what is taking pla
